Cupcake craft challenge #152–DT card

Hello again friends, I’m back once more this morning to share with you my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week the lovely Sari has set the theme and she has chosen “shabby sparkle”, so we would like to see all your shabby and sparkly creations.  Now as you probably know I don’t really do shabby that well, mine always seem to end up distressed but hey that’s way a challenge is all about I suppose.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 152 - shabby & sparkly

CCC challenge 152 - shabby & sparkly (close up)

I have used a gorgeous image from sassy studio designs called “skater sassy” and coloured her with my promarkers.  The papers/cardstock are all DCWV from their “vintage” card kit.  The papers already look shabby so I just roughed up and inked all the edges and add stickles to really make them sparkle (please click on the images for a closer look at the sparkle).  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo and is part of the ‘wild side ticket sentiments’ and I made some shabby lollipop flowers. 

Our sponsor this week is sassy studio designs and one lucky winner will receive 4 digi images of their choice.  As you can see from my card their images are definitely sassy!

Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor and for July that is polka doodles  and the lucky winner will receive 4 Christmas stamps.
